2011 Update From the Board of Directors

ADAA reached a crossroads last year with the untimely passing of Jerilyn Ross, our president and one of the founders. We had to weigh carefully what it means to carry on her legacy in an organization with a rich history of advocacy, education, and science

Our greatest strength is bringing together clinicians, basic and clinical researchers, and consumers. It is also one of our biggest challenges. This broad representation across disciplines is unique among mental health organizations.
